Tim Swinson made his debut for Glasgow Warriors against Connacht in September 2012.

He joined the Warriors from Newcastle Falcons, where he was named Player of the Season in 2012.

Having joined the club's list of centurions against Cardiff Blues in September 2017, he became only the second player in Warriors history to play 100 games for both Glasgow and another club, following in the footsteps of former hooker Dougie Hall.

In 2012/13 Swinson added try-scoring to his usual mix of bite and aggression in the pack, scoring a double against the Dragons in the record breaking win at Rodney Parade and followed that up with a third in two games against Ulster.

The second-row was a key member of the Glasgow Warriors squad that claimed their first Guinness PRO12 title in 2015.

He was named man-of-the-match in the club's historic 43-0 victory over Leicester Tigers in the Champions Cup, scoring one of Glasgow's six tries.

He was first called up by Scotland for their summer tour to South Africa in 2013 and was named most improved player on the tour by the Scotland management. His first international try came against France in the 2017 Six Nations, receiving a scoring pass from Warriors team-mate Tommy Seymour.
